Day 9: Hokkien New Year

OK.. finally we reached day 9.. ahha
This day is considered the first day of Chinese New Year for the hokkiens.Why?

According to my parents, long long time ago, the hokkien people were attacked and they went to hide themselves at the sugarcane farm. So the attackers couldnt find them. They hid there til the 9th day and when coast was clear, they came out n celebrate and call it the first day of the brand new life.. brand new year.

but my family is no hokkien.. so we just pray for fun.. (without the sugar canes)
